*Breaking* MA Delegates Rejected By Allocation Committee*Submitted by sawx75 on Fri, 06/15/2012 - 15:09
17 Liberty Delegates/Alternates have been not certified.
We are disappointed that the Allocation Committee would ignore the Republican voters of the Massachusetts Congressional Districts by refusing to even communicate with the delegates after numerous attempts to reach out to the allocation committee to discuss problems/issues with legality of the affidavit. The continued arrogant attitudes and clear manipulation of the rules by members of MassGOP leadership are a perfect example of why almost 90% Massachusetts residents refuse to be a Registered Republican and active in the Massachusetts Republican Party. Some elected delegates candidates had less than 40 hours to review, sign, notarize, and return an unprecented affidavit with an arbitrary deadline to MassGOP headquarters. Ultimately, many elected Ronald Reagan Unity Liberty slate delegate candidates that were just de-certified by the Allocation Committee had turned in the original, MassGOP affidavit before they met to make a decisions.
I am more disappointed that still, after last week’s endorsement of Governor Mitt Romney by Senator Rand Paul, a leader of the Republican Liberty movement, that the campaign staff of the Romney campaign would take the numerous olive branches offered by the ‘Ronald Reagan Unity Liberty Slate’, and continue to snap those olive branches in two, ignoring attempts for outreach and compromise, and just simply disenfranchising the voters and activists that could help Mitt Romney win in November’s General Election.
The mishandling of issues regarding the Provisional Ballots, 5th District Challenge, and Affidavits will only harden the resolve of the Liberty Caucus supporters, to work with the grassroots activists to re-build the Republican Party in Massachusetts, and help promote Liberty issues such as Auditing the Federal Reserve, and requiring Congressional Declaration of War to fund a war. Most likely, multiple challenges will be filed to the RNC rules committee, as the MassGOP leadership decides to waste its time and resources fighting with loyal, hardworking, grassroots activists rather than defeating Democrats.
